Welcome & we applaud you for going your "own way" and breaking clean of the HD herd. HD is still a great ride but these Vics are FAR more reliable and have SIGNIFICANTLY more power and (IMHO) also have greater style. Hope you like attention because your going to get a lot of questions from everyone you run into (of the good kind).




It's not just any victory.... It's MY Victory!

I have passenger pegs not floorboards but if you want to see examples go to http://shop.arlenness.com/ and use the dropdowns in the left column to find a Victory Cross Country or Cross Roads and either download the catalog or click through the parts. I have most of the deep cut (black with silver cuts) parts and suggest most. The passenger pegs I got had a problem with the rubber strips peeling off but they are supposed to be using a better adhesive now. I fixed mine with mighty mend it and haven't had a problem since.
